About The Best Fest:

Ten years after celebrating Bob Dylan’s 60th birthday, The Fest – Dylan Fest, Petty Fest and Stones Fest – has become a New York tradition, with sold-out celebrations at Bowery Ballroom, Music Hall of Williamsburg, Webster Hall and Irving Plaza. The New York Times described The Fest as “one the most jubilant events of the year,” and Rolling Stone touted it as “an experience that is equal parts concert and celebration.”
